My 1st edition British EU edition was red wood dice with gold pips, but they’re the exact same size as the combat dice.

All the Italian editions I have seen had red 14mm movement dice with golden pips.
Some UK version I bought second hand had black dice instead but it is possible the previous owner swap them with another game.
All the sealed dice I've seen were in a plastic bag with a "made in germany" text and the movement dice were red, even the US Game-System features the same dice bag. :roll3: :roll5:
The only difference in the dice is the Game-System has 2 additional combat dice (a total of six+two red dice)

We play that you can keep Treasure Card Potions between quests BUT the respective cards are removed from the Treasure Deck prior to the start of the next quest, so you don't get to stockpile them ... seems the best of both worlds.

Having now read this whole thread I'm wondering whether my new thread http://forum.yeoldeinn.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5620 should perhaps be appended on to this one. Can you merge threads? The focus on mine is a little different as I am looking to fix problems rather than just describe differences but that could just be splitting hairs. Thoughts anyone?

As a general principle* I use EU 2e rules but where they are not clear or otherwise problematic then I look to other versions for clarity / improvement before resorting to house rules

*By general principle I mean I ignore it when it suits me

It's worth noting that the red wood dice with gold pips are standard Monopoly dice, which is another franchise that MB (now Hasbro) were known for. For people who didn't know polyhedral dice, the six-sided dice were often referred to as Monopoly dice...

HeroQuest-Opoly ! |_P


Interesting stuff. My family had one of the "deluxe" editions (?) of Monopoly in the 80's, so it had big ("standard") plastic white d6's with the black pips. The houses and hotels were plastic and there was a tray for the banker and a little spinny plastic wheel for the title deed cards. My grandma had an old set that had wooden houses/hotels (and less variety in the metal tokens) but I don't remember what the dice were like, probably lost long ago and replaced by some generic dice. There was a super fancy limited edition advertised in magazines at the time that was a wooden box with drawers and velvet lining, and other fancy stuff, maybe gold pieces? Transparent or metal dice? Of course fast forward four decades and there's a monopoly edition for everything... hence Hero Quest!


A few years back my family also got one of those "game tables" that have a leaf (I guess you'd call it) in the center with laminated wooden boards that you can flip over and stack up, each for a different game. So you've got your classic chess/checkers board, backgammon, and one of them was Monopoly. It would be cool to make a Hero Quest one to add to it, even if it would be slightly smaller than the actual board, maybe with the logo shaved off to save space.
